Critique: Genre: This book is informational because it allows children to be able to count and teaches them the numbers one through twelve. However, it also could be seen as a poem since it flows easily and could go to the tune of a song. It is realistic to students in kindergarten class because they can relate to the different items the teacher is giving the students. Illustrations: The illustrations in the book try to imitate the different items the teacher is given at that time, but also incorporates all the previous items the teacher has given to the students. However, this makes the illustrations a little distracting because there is so much going on at once, it is hard to tell what the teacher is giving at the time. Similarly, it kind of takes away from the story because so much is packed onto one page.Media: Crayon/marker
